Come and play Blyth and you'll realise that there are some things in life that are still great value for money. Pound for pound, the 6,400 odd yard, 18-hole course on the outskirts of the seaport town in Northumberland has got to be one of the best days sport you'll find for your hard earned cash. Developed on land where once stood a pit head and it's entire mining community, Blyth has matured and developed into a tree-lined par 72, parkland course - but don't be fooled by its gently undulating character. Its first six holes are a test for any golfer. Negotiate them without dropping too many shots and you'll be set up for a good score. But beware - there are some cunning water hazards on 9,12,13 and 14 that demand a strong nerve and a sure stroke. They don't call the 13th hole 'Sinkers' for nothing! Superb greens - many say they're the best in the county - will make your round one of the most pleasurable you'll play in many a day.
